Think Tank Borrows Marketing Tactics From WWE

October 27th, 2008

The New America Foundation, a Washington think tank, has borrowed a page from World Wrestling Entertainment in advertising a campaign debate on technology policy.  The Technology Policy Smackdown will take place on Thursday, October 30, from 12:30-1:45 Eastern time.  The event will take place between McCain chief economic policy adviser (and former Chief of the Congressional Budget Office) Douglas Holtz-Eakin and former FCC Chairman (and Obama supporter) Reed Hundt.  It will be webcast from the page linked to above, starting at 12:25.

UPDATE 12:35 Eastern – One of the campaigns had to cancel this morning, and no last minute replacement was found.  The debate is now a conversation, but still going on.
